Triplets! A NICU Grad Photo Shoot

Please enjoy Preemie Prints' families’ inspirational story & photos. 
Consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. We thank our supporters, Preemie Prints volunteers, and donors for allowing us to continue touching the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families.

We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints 
will help families heal and remember how strong 
they were in overcoming their NICU journey together.


“Our triplets were born at 32 weeks. They had to stay in the NICU. While there they had to be on CPap and caffeine. And also one of our triplets, Willow, had a malfunction in her oxygen tank and she had received too much oxygen at 100%. They didn't know for how long she was breathing that much, so she ended up with ROP and had to have eye surgery in the NICU! They had to slowly learn to eat and now they all are home and doing wonderfully. Willow just had her second eye surgery and now they're saying her eyes are perfect and she might not even need glasses!”

This photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints
volunteer photographer, Katie Schneider.
A Note From Katie:
"These adorable triplet girls were such a pleasure to photograph for their One Year Portraits plus a fun smash cake. The portrait session took place on a sunny day at a local park. We started with individual portraits and a triplet sister portrait. Then, we found a shady spot for the smash cake. They were excited about the jumbo cupcakes and thoroughly enjoyed their first cake experience. Watching triplet one year old girls interact was captivating. They were looking to see what the other sister was doing with her cake and even stole some tastes of the other cupcakes."

One of those programs is the gift of NICU photography and preemie photography. NICU families from across the US can request a no-charge photography session by a Preemie Prints volunteer. The family request from can be found on the right side of our website. These sessions are free of charge and for any NICU family, regardless of time spent in the NICU. The NICU photo shoot can take place inside the NICU or after baby is discharged and at home until their 1st birthday. Facing time in a NICU with a premature or critically ill baby is an extremely difficult time for families. Preemie Prints has a mission to share hope by letting families know they are not alone. Preemie Prints currently has over 50 volunteers nationwide. We are always looking for more volunteers to share in our mission! If you are interested, please email and visit our website at To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 500 NICU family sessions. 

This was a Preemie Prints NICU graduate photography session that took place near New Richland, OH.

We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families.
